A "neighbourhood dispute" in the Invercargill suburb of Glengarry sparked an Armed Offenders Squad callout early this morning.

Police said they were notified about 3am that a firearm had been brandished by one of the neighbours in Crawford St.

"As a result the armed offender squad was called out and negotiated with both parties. Unfortunately it took some time for the people to understand what was required," police said.

Members of the Armed Offenders Squad had been stationed in the area for over three hours.

Police said the incident was resolved by 7am they were now speaking to several people who were involved.

Road blocks in the area had been cleared.
